I knew better, we stayed here in June of 2013. I guess my memory is getting bad. I wasn't impressed back then, and less impressed now. Late check in went smooth until we got to the room. Keys wouldn't work, couldn't get in). Went back to desk where we were given new keys. They wouldn't work either. The night mgr.... More

Why I didn't read reviews before booking I have no idea other than I was using my Choice pts. Supposedly it's under new mgt. But don't know how that can fix the problems! Room keys were obsolete along with all the furnishings! Cleaning the windows would make a difference but not fix the place up! Bed & pillows were from... More

This motel is in serious need of updating. King bed consisted of piece of plywood on floor then 2 twin box springs with king mattress on top, making for a very low bed. Mattress a bit saggy; pillows overly soft. Bedspread was worn out and had holes in it. Old analog TV. Couch was in desperate need of cleaning, if... More

We had been on the road and had to stop somewhere. The price was right, and the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They had an outdoor pool which looked nice enough but which I did not use. The free breakfast was mediocre, and the room, though clean, was dingy and woefully out of date. Effingham is one... More

you liberally assumed that because I didn't explicitly mention the filth in the room that I stayed in then it must've been clean...it wasn't! Like the hundreds of other unsuspecting guests that have been lured into this hovel by the perceived quality of the EconoLodge sign I too must make an addendum to my previous review.

We were traveling and it was late and needed a place to rest our heads. This is your basic hotel, no frills, just a place to sleep. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Breakfast is very basic,waffles,fruit and box donuts. Great place for the price. Staff was very friendly.

My wife and I were on a trip back from Ohio and decided to give this place a try, BIG MISTAKE!! and if we weren't so tired from traveling we would've sought another place to stay. If I were the choice hotel group I would drop this place off the list! DISGUSTING!!

Wow, I ignored the reviews and shouldn't have. First room I was in was exactly what I didn't pay for. It had two beds: one was way too soft, but the other had a sort-of firm mattress. The TV was an old tube. Toilet kept running. The door frame and lock weren't secure. There was a small centipede crawling up... More
